Top 5 Casino Stocks For 2019

Perhaps it is because trading stocks can often mirror the thrill of winning big at the blackjack tables, or maybe it is because Las Vegas conjures images of the world’s most flashy brands and businessmen. Regardless of the reason, it is clear that gambling stocks are always among the most popular on Wall Street.

Luckily for investors, now is also an interesting time to be buying gambling stocks, as continued Vegas strength, legalized sports gambling coming to the U.S., and an overall international interest in gaming has created some interesting buying opportunity.

Of course, no industries are without risk, and recently, some casino giants have been selling off as gambling data has hinted at a potential slowdown in Macau after an extended recovery in the world’s top gaming hotspot.

Still, we can use Zacks’ proven stock-picking methods to find solid stocks in any industry. Check out these casino stocks today:
